I interviewed at Chicago Public Schools

Interview

By the principal of the school. I was able to meet the principal, and tour the school. The principal was honest when answering questions, and didn't try to sell the teaching position to me. She was upfront, and it showed integrity, and how much she cared about the school overall. I was also able to see and meet some of the teachers at the school.

If you are an experienced teacher try the Opportunity Schools Program. They are looking for excellent educators to work in the hardest areas (poor, crime, hard to staff) of Chicago. Mostly on the West and South side of Chicago. Not a difficult process (interviews by phone) if approved in program. They guarantee you a teaching job around March/April. Usually interview with a principle (over phone) by June.

Interview Questions
  • Simple easy questions. They are looking for people who want to make a difference in areas that have been overlooked far too long in Chicago.
